Many law students fear seeking the necessary attention and help for their mental health issues because they know they’re likely to have to report it on their moral character application. Even though few applicants are denied admission based on mental health treatment or diagnoses, there is still a lot of stigma surrounding seeking help. So what are law students and lawyers applying anew for their moral character application to do?
I’m joined by two wonderful guests, Margaret Hannon and Katherine Silver Kelly, to discuss the fear surrounding seeking necessary help. Margaret is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Michigan law school, and she teaches Legal Research and Writing. Katherine is the Director of Academic Support at Ohio State University Moritz College of Law and has a lot of experience working with students, preparing them to apply for their character and fitness application process.
